Ibeyi is 22-year-old French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz. Since the release of their critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album in February 2015, Ibeyi have been captivating audiences across the globe with their unique blend of modern pop, hip-hop and electronic influenced with the traditional sounds of Yorùbá.
At the end of 2016 the adoration of their debut album revealed itself through requests for the twins to perform at the Chanel Cruise 2016/17 fashion show in Cuba, an appearance in Beyoncé’s video for Lemonade, and Maura Bigonzetti’s ‘Deep,’ a performance choreographed to music by Ibeyi for Alvin Ailey’s Dance Theatre. Ibeyi’s sophomore album, which sees the twins working again with producer/XL head Richard Russell, will include appearances from Kamasi Washington, Chilly Gonzales, La Mala Rodriguez, and Meshell Ndegeocello.
